How do I Pay My Ticket?
You may pay the bail amount or fine for your ticket to the Court before the date on the ticket that you are required to appear. The bail on a ticket is the amount of money required to guarantee your appearance in Court. This amount is set by a bail schedule according to your cited violation. You can pay your ticket:

  • By Online Services on this website
  • By phone
  • By mail
  • In person at the court location on your ticket

Pay your ticket by phone. You can find the phone number you need when you select the courthouse listed on your ticket under Traffic Court Locations.

When you pay the fine and do not appear in court on the date on the ticket:
  • The bail is declared forfeited
  • The case may be closed
  • The ticket information is forwarded to the DMV and recorded on your driving record

You may also request an arraignment hearing date. At your hearing, you may:
  • Pay the bail amount
  • Request traffic school if you are eligible
  • Enter a plea of guilty, no-contest, or not guilty
  • Request a Petition to Reduce or Vacate Civil Assessment or for an Ability to Pay Determination. For more information, click here.

  • Some violations require a mandatory court appearance and cannot be paid online or by phone.
